TGA SME Assist Workshop: Meeting Your Obligations (Melbourne) - November 2018

Closed 7 Nov 2018

Opened 3 Oct 2018


Navigating the regulatory maze can be a challenge, especially if you're new to regulation. 

‘Meeting Your Obligations’ is a free workshop presented by SME Assist that is aimed at beginners who are unfamiliar with therapeutic goods regulation. This may include:

  • small to medium enterprises (SMEs)
  • start-ups
  • researchers

If you are making therapeutic claims about a product or have a product that is likely to be considered a therapeutic good, this full-day workshop will help you understand your responsibilities at different stages of the regulation process.

What will be covered

Part I – Basics

An overview of therapeutic goods regulation, including TGA’s role, market authorisation and common terms you will encounter when engaging with us.

Part II – Case Studies

Case study analyses that cover requirements and obligations common across all types of therapeutic goods, including advertising, adverse events and product recalls. These are followed by a Q&A session with TGA specialists.

Part III – Breakouts

Upon registering your interest, you will be given the opportunity to nominate one specialty area:

  1. Biologicals
  2. Medical devices
  3. Complementary medicines
  4. Prescription medicines

Part III of the workshop will consist of breakout sessions focusing on these different areas, depending upon interest.
